January 27, 2019 – Third Sunday after the Epiphany
Psalm 19; Old Testament: Nehemiah 8:1-3, 5-6, 8-10; Gospel: Luke 4:16-30
“Read It and…Rejoice!” - Sermon Text: Nehemiah 8:1-10 - Rev. William Mueller
In the dark days after the exiles returned from captivity in Babylon, the Word of God was rare. Ezra, the priest, reads and applies God’s Word and the people respond with repentant weeping and abiding faith. The Word of God still has that same power for us – so we are invited to read it and rejoice!
